Both natural and man-made causes can lead to weak soils beneath your home. The original soil composition may have included loosely-packed materials that were not packed well before construction, or nearby drilling or excavation may have resulted in compromised soil quality. Regardless of the cause, weak soils generally result in subsidence, which often appears as the gradual sinking or “caving in” of an area of land. Left unchecked, subsidence near your home can have a negative impact on your home’s foundation.

How We Repair
The service to address weak soil composition involves URETEK Deep Injection® (UDI) of our polymer resin under the affected areas. We typically inject beneath the house and surrounding areas to densify and stabilize the soils.
Have Any Questions?
Our proven UDI application is also the preferred method for stabilizing weak soils and lifting settled parking lots and paved public spaces.
The UDI Advantage
UDI requires no excavation, and projects can often be completed in hours or days. Traditional repair methods often involve excavation, and the time required for project completion can be weeks.
The repair process is priced consistently below alternative repair methods, and implementing repairs now significantly reduces further repair costs down the road.
URETEK’s 486 Star polymer is specially formulated for stability and strength, even in the harshest environments. Our polymer is hydro-insensitive, and UDI is warranted against loss of dimensional stability or deterioration.
URETEK’s 486 Star polymer material has been used to successfully complete over 100,000 projects nationwide. The lightweight, expansive geo-polymer material not only realigns concrete pavement but also addresses the problem at the source – weak soil composition – giving customers a long-lasting solution.
Unlike other repair methods, UDI is minimally disruptive and requires no excavation.
Liability risk is greatly reduced with UDI due to an inherently safer working environment without deep excavation or heavy equipment. The process and material are eco-friendly and meet today’s high environmental standards.
